There’s a scene in the 2005 film Jarhead when a soldier’s wife sends him his favorite film on VHS, The Deer Hunter. Instead of Robert De Niro and Christopher Walken facing off over a bout of Russian roulette, however, he sees footage of his wife cheating on him with the next-door neighbor. It’s a godawful scene to watch, though not nearly as terrible as a somewhat similar viral video that’s currently making the rounds.
According to the GoFundMe page of Brian May, who served five years in the United States Marine Corps before being honorably discharged, he returned home to Hawaii to find himself in a rather unpleasant situation:
I flew in and took a taxi to my house. First thing I notice is that there is an unfamiliar vehicle in my driveway and none of my vehicles are there. I go inside and start recording and immediately notice my 3 year old daughter down stairs, alone, watching a show on the computer. I go upstairs and into my on suite bathroom and find a man leaning over kissing my wife who is naked and drunk on the toilet. I escort him out, being very careful not to be violent toward him and he literally runs away! I tell my wife that I’m going to her command with the video as adultery is against the uniform code of military justice for people in the armed forces.
After his discharge, May took on the role of the stay-at-home dad while his wife re-enlisted. This worked fine until, after moving to Hawaii, his wife grew apart from him and asked him to attend school in Florida. It was during his return trip to Hawaii, as described above, that May discovered what was going on.
The story, per May’s GoFundMe page, becomes more and more complex. He alleges that, based on evidence found throughout the Hawaii house and from discussions with neighbors, his wife would often throw alcohol-fueled parties and neglect their daughter. Meanwhile, she has apparently been pursuing legal action against May since just after he left for Florida.
An update on Thursday suggests that May’s wife, her lover, and an associated Staff Non-Commissioned Officer (SNCO) allege May is “psychotic,” “abusive” and cannot be trusted with her, their daughter, or himself. May, however, denies these claims.
Nothing is confirmed, as almost everything about this viral video comes from May himself.
